The Juliano Journal
Week of April 25-29
Please remember to send in a picture of your child by Monday. This picture should be in color, and include your child in a "busy" setting where there is a lot going on. Students will be using the pictures for a writing activity during language arts next week.
The students will begin Spring MAP testing next week. The students will be taking one reading and one math test. Please take note of the days and times below, and refrain from pulling your child out of school during these times if possible.
- Friday, May 6th- Reading: 1:20
- Monday, May 9th- Math: 1:40
The plant sale will be held next week. Our class will have the opportunity to purchase individual plants on Thursday. If you are sending in money with your child to purchase plants, please send the money on Thursday in an envelope labeled "Plant Sale." Please be sure that your child understands how many plants he/she should buy when we are shopping, and if he/she should expect change back. Also, if you are interested in pre-ordering a hanging plant, the order forms are due back to school on Monday.
Have a fantastic weekend!
Miss Juliano :)
We also reviewed persuasive writing this week. We discussed that in a persuasive piece of writing, an author states his/her opinion at the beginning and then supports the opinion with reasons and facts. Students had fun writing a persuasive paragraph about whether or not dogs are the best pets for kids!
The students seem to have a great grasp of these two multiplication methods so far. I am so proud of the students for willing to try new methods! Next week I will teach the students "traditional multiplication." Once students have learned all three, it is up to them to decide which method they like the best!
